A suicide bomber struck an education center in a shiite area of Afghnaistan Capital, Kabul on Friday (30/9/2022) killing 19 people and wounding 27.

A taliban-appointed spokesman for the Kabul police chief said the explosion took place in the morning hours inside the center in the Dashti Barchi neighborhood of Kabul.

The victims of the bomb attack included high school graduates both girls and boys who were taking a practice university entrance exam when the blast went off.
